About the property

Marrick, Swaledale, North Yorkshire, England - South Facing, Quiet Village Location

Rose Cottage has a south facing terraced front garden with fantastic views across the dale. Entry to the cottage is via a useful porch, designed to accommodate muddy boots and/or for drying off the beloved pet! The kitchen diner is homely and furnished in farmhouse style with a traditional Yorkshire flagged stone floor and an Esse range cooker (same as an Aga). A cosy beamed sitting room provides a relaxing place to "get away from it all" and relax. There is a utility room which provides space for storing outdoor equipment such as climbing or cycling gear. The stairs lead to a newly refurbished shower room and then upwards on to a separate cloakroom with WC and wash basin. The two double bedrooms are at the front of the house and both provide beautiful views across the dale to the opposing hills. Situated in a lovely quiet and friendly village Rose Cottage is ideally placed for those wishing to walk the many footpaths, cycle the quiet lane or simply relax and watch the world go by.

About Gay Sayles

Rose Cottage was my much loved family home and has belonged to my family since 1946. I now live in Suffolk but have maintained Rose Cottage after I inherited it for our personal family and friends holidays. I have chosen now to offer Rose Cottage as a holiday home so that others can enjoy and share the experience of this stunning and beautiful area of outstanding natural beauty.

Gay Sayles purchased this cottage in 1949

Why Gay Sayles chose Marrick

Love the area and its people

What makes this cottage unique

Relaxing in peace and quiet. Lovely walks through meadows and along the many footpaths with my dogs.

Winter pub lunches with roaring real fires and good food.

Chatting to local farmers and others in the bar of the local pub at Grinton.

An ideal country cottage withe views

  • 5 of 5

Lovely little cottage in a quiet village with outstanding views of Swaledale. Well equipped and comfortable and the Esse stove cooked well when at full heat and provided cosy background heat when not turned up for cooking. There were other ways of cooking besides the Esse range, a microwave, halogen oven and electric wok but we liked the Esse.The South facing garden was the ideal place to sit in the afternoon after visiting local towns and villages. The walkers passing by on the Coast to Coast path were of all ages and nationalities. There were many footpaths in the area which we explored with our dog and lots of lambs to keep us entertained with their antics. The cottage had free WiFi and a good digital televison plus film channel. We were lucky with the weather but could imagine it would be a nice place to stay at anytime of year.

Relaxing and cosy traditional dales cottage.

  • 5 of 5

Beautiful quirky cottage in idyllic surroundings. We booked for 4 nights but sadly had to leave after 2 , due to a family emergency so did not get to enjoy the full experience of this cosy cottage. Only (small) downside for me personally was the heat , as the esse range has to be on permanently which meant radiators were hot all the time. We were lucky enough to have good weather , so it was a bit 'too' cosy. Be marvellous on a cold autumn day though! That aside, a truly lovely traditional dales cottage, well equipped, and all you can hear are birds and sheep. So relaxing. We hope to visit again.

Perfect hideaway in a beautiful character cottage with great walking opportunities

  • 5 of 5

From the moment I arrived at Rose Cottage, I was planning my return visit. The cottage has been owned by the same family for nearly 70 years and is consequently very much loved and very homely. It is wonderfully honest and quirky with lots of traditional features and was a joy to stay in. The kitchen was well equipped with a range to cook on and a dresser of pretty china. Everything was easy and straightforward and the cottage was cosy, comfortable and a home from home. The front garden has a beautiful view and there are many footpaths just outside the gate which made it a great place for walking circular routes or further afield being situated right on the Coast to Coast. I can't wait to return as this is a truly secret place to get away from it all.

A little gem in the Yorkshire dales

  • 5 of 5

We booked this cottage about 6 months ago, because we love the area, and I must admit that I was concerned that I had booked when I saw the previous review but I was more than pleasantly surprised.

After an long drive for about 4 hours we arrived in Marrick just before dark.

And we were happy to be welcomed by such a homely feeling lovely cottage.

All was very clean, and everything was working, a lovely old fashion kitchen, a very modern bathroom, and 2 nice decorated bedrooms, the cottage has central heating and is working very well, so we were pleasantly surprised with the cottage, we had a great break, and booked again for next year
